  • all the money gained from from taxing motorists should be returned to the transport infrastructure and used to fund its regeneration. The DETR should declare what proportion of vehicle and excise duty is put back into the transport infrastructure
  • the Government should implement a “sane” transport policy, concentrating on speed limits in built up areas, rather than motorways, to ensure that city subways are safe for pedestrians and that the transport system upholds “our personal freedom rather than suppresses it”
  • a call to the Government why its doesn't help increase the number of outlets for liquified petroleum gas fuel by changing “restrictive planning directives”.
